Tributes paid to 'humble role model' footballer
24th June 2014

A Willesden footballer who died while on holiday is Spain was a "humble role model" to his peers.

Alex Stephens died last week after flying out with friends to a music festival in Barcelona.

The defender played for Watford's youth team before becoming a full time player at AFC Wembley.

It's not known how the 21-year-old died, but police aren't treated his death as suspicious.
